HELLO YOU I wonder who you are why you come here to share your soul and spill your thoughts into all these little boxes. We are both so alike yet with disparate lives miles apart only internet connected through cabled wires. I read your bio what you choose to tell me and make up the rest fill in the blanks pretend we're old friends. Where are you in this world? I want to imagine your view see what only you can see when you write your words on your laptop or phone. Won't you invite me there? take me by the hand and show me all that means so much to you let me understand the why of your mind and share some precious time. One lifetime seems not enough to put these words into all their many convoluted combinations to make sense of the turmoil in our heads and make peace with one another. We should meet up and say hello you so nice to meet you and have a nice day it's been fun I love you. Maybe then in this time and space this world would be in better shape if we all just hugged and said hello and understood each other's woes all hatred laid to waste. Anyways I've rambled on you must think I'm daft my head all wrong it's just reaching out that's all.

'Forced Hyacinths' is a botanical technical term for bulbs that have been kept in the dark and treated with a substance to make them bloom after Christmas.

Hi Keith, Ray, Colin and Jon
Thank you all for your posts and I can advise you of my intent to write a massive thriller about containment, strangers and with no point of reference- a bit like my local- Tommy. ;- )

thanks very much for commenting on 'Bait' Colin - glad you liked it - I'm hopeless at visiting WOL site at the moment - so only get to see comments when I come back to post something new - so sincere apologies for delay in responding - I really must make more of an effort to visit and contribute
